3) What is expected to happen is when one exports https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/122383/+attachment/1390003/+files/JSONMessage-library-manual.odt to .html the Table of Contents hyperlinks do not refer to non-existent external files when opened with Firefox.

4) What happens instead is they do.

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Comment 3 Peter Jentsch 2012-11-25 22:30:58 UTC
seems related to fdo#56595. There, the href elements were broken, here it's the "a name" attributes missing or malformed. I'll have a lot at this.
